You know what used to happen in Philadelphia restaurants all the time? Collaboration dinners. But for some reason, not so much anymore more. So we were very excited to see this event cross our desk.

On Monday, November 14, Jaxon BYOB will be hosting a dinner with chef Christopher Kearse from Will BYOB and Jaxon’s new chef, Matthew Gansert. Kearse and Gansert worked together at Will. Gansert has also been the chef of Jerry’s Bar and Resurrection Ale House. The pair are reuniting for this special prix-fix dinner event. The dinner is BYOB and will cost $55 per person.

Jaxon is named for owner Tony Schiro’s four-year old son. Schiro opened the Northern Liberties restaurant at the corner of 3rd and Fairmount after a long run as the proprietor of the Latest Dish and Fluid nightclub off of South Street.
